Adorned with beautiful statues, dramatic markers and lush gardens, Sacramento Historic City Cemetery is an outdoor museum recording California history from the Gold Rush Era through today.

Since its establishment in 1849, the City Cemetery has become the resting place of many remarkable Californians, demonstrating the diversity of California history and culture. Visitors will discover the burial sites of Sacramento mayors and California governors as well as memorials to Civil War Veterans, Volunteer Firemen and the victims of the 1850 Cholera Epidemic.

The City Cemetery is the oldest existing cemetery in Sacramento. Keeping with the popular style of the times, it was designed to resemble a Victorian garden. Traversed by pathways and grand avenues, the cemetery provides a park-like setting for exploring history.
